Pool Aquatics Center Brookside Park While Brookside Park may be most famous for the Rose Bowl, for locals there are many other reasons to visit it. 

The Rose Bowl Aquatics Center not only provides swimming and diving lessons for hundreds of children every year, it is also home to swimming and diving meets including those that lead to the Olympics.

Regularly, there are local swim meets such as this one at a Fitness for Life day for Pasadena seniors.

If you are not a swimmer, but love to go bicycling, jogging or walking, you can join the thousands of people who follow the broad 3 mile route which circles around the Park and the Rose Bowl every week.  Even the Mayor does it once a month and invites everyone in Pasadena to join him.

There are also tennis courts with tennis lessons, baseball diamonds with nighttime lighting and, of course, the ubiquitous children's playground near the Aquatics Center. 

And if you plan to give a BBQ for hundreds of people, there is a gigantic array of picnic tables lined up behind the Aquatics Center with huge BBQ grills to prepare mountains of those tasty ribs.


  Kidspace Museum Pasadena California The nearby Kidspace Museum was designed to encourage children to think creatively and explore their environment.

Brookside Golf Course Pasadena California Brookside Public Golf Course is north of the Rose Bowl.  A relatively flat course, it is busy from dawn to dusk.  And if you don't golf, you can always stop at the Clubhouse and pick up a bite to eat.
